New Briefings for Elected Members

CLASP has just launched a new set of briefing leaflets to help elected members of Local Authorities and other partner organisations to make informed decisions on, and respond to the opportunities of the low carbon economy and climate resilience challenges.

The briefings were produced after consultation with elected members in late 2012. Overall the consultation identified 6 priority areas for support, with up to date information about how elected members can make a difference, what the key issues are, and who should be involved.

Or view individual briefings:

1 Developing your Local Low Carbon, Green Economy for Enterprise and Jobs

2 Helping Households Save Energy – Delivering Social and Economic Opportunities

3 Local and Low Carbon Energy Opportunities

4 Assessing and Understanding Renewable Energy Developments

5 Creating Resilient Communities

6 Local Authority Responsibilities for Flooding and Risk Management

CLASP is starting to distribute packs of the briefings to elected members who attend our events.  We will also be supplying all NW authorities with a few packs for members in March 2013.  For more information, or to order a set, contact
